Massive Mystery 'Blob' In Pacific Could Be Messing With The Weather

Massive Mystery 'Blob' In Pacific Could Be Messing With The Weather | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
If you're wondering why British Columbia experienced such a mild winter and early spring, you could maybe blame it on a mysterious "blob" of warm water in the Pacific Ocean.

The anomaly was first detected in 2013 by University of Washington climate scientist Nicholas Bond, who coined the term "blob." Since the fall of that year, scientists have been tracking a large mass of water in the Pacific Ocean that is 1,000 square kilometres long and at least two degrees Celsius warmer than usual.
